The radio play Bring Me The Head Of Philip K. Dick just aired on BBC Radio Three today and is online as a podcast for the next seven days. Here's the official description:

Gregory Whitehead's dark, surreal and satirical drama, set in contemporary America, centres on a deadly futuristic weapon in the shape of the android head of science-fiction writer Philip K Dick. Invented by a shadowy research unit inside the Pentagon, the head - which believes it actually is Dick himself - is wreaking havoc on society and must be stopped before it finds its body.

I somehow wonder if an android head of Philip K. Dick wouldn't be more dangerous without his body. [via Total Dickhead]
